Community Service Hours
Tutors receive 1.5 hours of off-campus community service credit for each tutoring session. Most semesters will include 12 sessions, but holidays and other calendar irregularities may decrease the number of possible sessions.
The Center for Community Engagement will track service hours throughout the semester and provide tutors with a report after the last day of regular classes for the semester. These hours will be submitted electronically to the Scholarship and New Student Financial Aid Center and Ethnic Programs and Services offices. Students with the Cincinnatus, Darwin T. Turner, UC Global, and National Outreach scholarships will have their hours reported on their behalf. Students with other scholarships and course requirements should contact BearcatBuddies@uc.edu to make arrangements for any other reporting verification they may need.
Please note that should any of the items in the Bearcat Buddies Volunteer Agreement and Expectations policy document be violated, the Center for Community Engagement will not award community service hours. Appeals to the implementation of this policy will be considered on a case by case basis by the program support staff.
